A group of Maoist former rebels have been arrested over the death of a journalist during Nepal's civil war, with one of them confessing the reporter was buried alive, police say.

The arrests of the five men, whose detention came days after a Nepalese soldier was held in Britain on charges of torture, are the first in Nepal for crimes committed during the decade-long conflict that ended in 2006.

The five men, all middle-ranking cadres, have been charged with the abduction and murder of Dekendra Raj Thapa, a radio reporter and human rights activist who died in 2004.

Lachhiram Gharti, one of the accused, had confessed to taking part in the murder, Binod Sharma, an inspector in the western district of Dailekh, told AFP.

'He confessed to us that they kidnapped (the victim) under the pretext of a discussion on water supply and took him to a local school,' Sharma said.


Cultural Revolution: Mao proclaimed that capitalist ideology, liberalism, and other bourgeois cultures are not fully removed from society through socialist revolution and that class struggle against these detrimental features of capitalism are continued in one form or another throughout the socialist stage of development. Maoism states the method for dealing with bourgeois culture is through “cultural revolution,” in which, according to their theory, the masses are mobilized to spread communist ideology in order to reduce capitalistic or feudalistic culture.

However, the cultural revolution turned out to be an ultra-left disaster for Mao. Beginning in 1966, it was more of a tribute to the cult of Mao than to spreading communism. All of Mao’s words and teachings were expected to be understood and followed without question, and as a result production and economic activity declined, workers too busy engaging in appraisal of Mao Tse-Tung thought. Because class consciousness was not reached, the masses, many of whom were mere youth, frequently became excessively violent, opportunistic, and acted more in favor of adventurism than communism.


DAVAO CITY -- Victims of the latest grenade attack in a remote village here, including their relatives and supporters, staged an indignation rally in front of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) church in this city Thursday morning.

Lieutenant Colonel Lyndon Paniza, spokesperson for the 10th Infantry Division, said the protesters also included victims of the atrocities of the Maoist New Peoples' Army (NPA) from different areas in Mindanao.

"Relatives and supporters of the slain tribal chieftains in North Cotabato and Marilog district in Davao City were also among those who participated in the indignation rally," Paniza said.

The protesters, according to reports, are against to what they called was a "measly" payment of the National Democratic Front (NDF) to each victim of the grenade blast during a fiesta in Paquibato district.


DR. MARIO Miclat’s “Secrets of the Eighteen Mansions: A Novel” (Manila: Anvil Publishing, 2010) reveals in rich detail many of the covert factors that contributed to the growth of one of our country’s biggest problems: the Communist Party of the Philippines.

The “18 mansions” are the buildings in a secret compound in Beijing where the Chinese Communist Party in the 1960s and 1970s housed delegations of communist parties all over the world to facilitate its clandestine aid to their own insurgencies.


Comrade Mao-Zedong had been so clear in his teachings. Practice is primary over theory. He rhetorically asked in his philosophical writings, “Where do correct ideas come from? Do they fall from the sky? Are they innate in the mind? No, they come from social practice and social practice alone.”

Comrade Mao taught us that only revolutionary practice validates the correctness of a revolutionary theory, tactics or policy. A theory has to undergo a series of validation and improvement through summed-up practice before it could be upheld as correct, appropriate and beneficial to the people’s interest.


It's party time in Utrecht. And it's not about the Communist Party of the Philippines.

Apologists say comrades should give Prof. Jose Maria Sison aka Amado Guerrero or Armando Liwanag some slack. He has to socialize with friends and allies. One of his friends is Asia Agcaoili, known in Philippine showbiz as the outspoken sex guru.

Granted. But will the CPP allow the comrades in the guerrilla fronts to party with skimpily clad beautiful young women? Or will the leading organs impose disciplinary actions against the male comrades, the Red Fighters who have been away from their families to dare to struggle, dare to win the new democratic revolution?


The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP-Maoist) has spent a tremendous amount of manpower, financial and materials resources in the electoral campaign, in the process forging a tactical alliance with the landlord-bureaucrat capitalist Manuel Villar, the Nacionalista Party--and indirectly with the family of the late fascist puppet dictator Ferdinand Marcos.

The national circus, called the Philippine national election, is over. In all likelihood, the US-directed Arroyo regime is on its way out of the puppet presidency. And Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III representing the landlord-comprador factional interests will be the next president of the Philippine puppet republic.

Torture is torture. Torture is barbaric. Torture of anyone is human rights violation. Torture of an NPA commander, member, trainee or sympathizer is still a torture. Torture will not bring the truth. A person undergoing torture may admit to anything he or she being accused of.

On other hand pictures and video are excellent evidence. The photos and video clearly shows Melissa Roxas in a New People's Army (NPA) Camp. One can conclude that she is undergoing training or that she is at least a sympathizer if not a member. She can deny many times but any unbiased observer will conclude that the person in the photos is one and the same.





October 1 will mark 60 years since Mao Zedong proclaimed the creation of the Peoples Republic of China. This followed the victory of the People’s Liberation Army, led by the Communist Party of China, over the US-backed Guomindang (Nationalist Party).

In 1921, when the communist party was founded, China was in chaos. Western intervention — military, economic, political and cultural — had destroyed or undermined traditional Chinese institutions. New, stable institutions had not been created.

*** Various imperialist powers grabbed pieces of Chinese territory.

Some modern industry was established, mainly in the coastal cities. But most Chinese people were peasants, heavily exploited by big landowners.

The CP, which had won support among urban workers, was ruthlessly crushed by the Guomindang in 1927, with thousands of communists massacred.


On “Abduction, illegal detention, and torture” of Melissa Roxas.

THE “ALLEGED abduction, illegal detention, and torture” of a certain Melissa Roxas, reportedly in May 19, 2009, has indeed startled the very core of human civilities.

Indeed, a run-around of events and developments, are strewn in almost all nooks of our country’s free and democratic life. Even the core of our democratic institutions is now being used to generate undue public criticism against the duly constituted, free, and democratic government of our country.

Incredible is the story of Melissa’s alleged travails, as narrated in her Sworn Statement submitted to the Supreme Court in her petition for a Writ of Amparo. Indeed it is incredible because the narration has been woven very close, clean, and neat that even a very close and cursorily look could not spot a flaw, save for an expert’s keen senses brought about by his years within the Maoist communist-terrorist organization.
